New Age Pantsulas In Bo-Kaap: Watch K.O. & Cassper Nyovest’s Music Video For ‘Waya Waya’

Watch K.O. and Cassper Nyovest's Cape Town-shot video for "Waya Waya."

K.O. just released visuals to his Cassper Nyovest-assisted single "Waya Waya," from the 2-track EP Two Piece Two Piece.


On the video, which was directed by Cape Town-based filmmaker Andile Sinqoto, was filmed in The Mother City, in Bo-Kaap and in some parts of the Cape Flats.

The two new age pantsulas render some dance moves alongside a crowd excited extras who also gyrate and proudly sip their ngudus. The video being shot in the hood is a fit for "Waya Waya," as the song borrows a lot from kwaito, just like a lot of K.O.'s and Cassper's songs.

K.O. did hint on Twitter a few weeks ago that he will shoot videos for both songs on Two Piece. So, best believe there will also be visuals for "Fire Emoji," which features AKA. It's about to get litty.

Watch the video for "Waya Waya" below, and listen to Two Piece here:

Interview

Sarkodie Is Not Feeling Any Pressure

The elite Ghanaian rapper affirms his king status with this seventh studio album, No Pressure.

Sarkodie is one of the most successful African rappers of all time. With over ten years of industry presence under his belt, there's no question about his prowess or skin in the game. Not only is he a pioneer of African hip-hop, he's also the most decorated African rapper, having received over 100 awards from close to 200 nominations over the span of his career.

What else does Sarkodie have to prove? For someone who has reached and stayed at the pinnacle of hip-hop for more than a decade, he's done it all. But despite that, he's still embracing new growth. One can tell just by listening to his latest album, No Pressure, Sarkodie's seventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2019's Black Love which brought us some of the Ghanaian star's best music so far. King Sark may be as big as it gets, but the scope of his music is still evolving.

Sonically, No Pressure is predominantly hip-hop, with the first ten tracks offering different blends of rap topped off with a handful of afrobeats and, finally, being crowned at the end with a gospel hip-hop cut featuring Ghanaian singer MOG. As far as the features go, Sark is known for collaborating mostly with his African peers but this time around he branches out further to feature a number of guests from around the world. Wale, Vic Mensa, and Giggs, the crème de la crème of rap in America and the UK respectively all make appearances, as well as Nigeria's Oxlade, South Africa's Cassper Nyovest, and his fellow Ghanaian artists Darkovibes and Kwesi Arthur.
